Ok, so after a tap on the shoulder, support from Frank, an interview early morning and weeks of anticipation, FINALLY, the official announcement from my boss "Pamela" that I am going to Qatar on a Short Term International Assignment.................

It reads:
I am pleased to announce that Norma Ulrich has accepted a Short Term International Assignment (STIA) to Qatar. Norma is expected to be on seat in Qatar on September 19th for a four month assignment.  Norma's current job duties will be temporarily distributed to other PBS team members during this time. Please join me in congratulating Norma on her temporary assignment.

So here I go!  Lot's to do to prepare for my trip!

BTW ybnrml stands for Why Be Normal?  as most of you know, normal I am not! (smile)

We are looking forward to having you join the team. You will add some excellent skills and experience to a new and very diverse team here. It is a tiny country, but we have over 40 nationalities on the project, so your exposure to Qatar will also be exposure to the globe in one place. I can promise you it will be very interesting personally and professionally.

Hi Norma! Hope you had a safe trip out and are starting to get settled into your new home-away-from-home. Best of luck with the team in Qatar.
